- The Guardian Unlimited internet network adds a new site to its package this week with the launch of Work Unlimited.

Work Unlimited, which has been in preview form since the network launched in January, is designed to appeal to people in their place of work with both games and more serious work-related content. Located at www.workunlimited.co.uk, it is billed as being "dedicated to all those who spend time in the office, either working, or maintaining the illusion of working."

The "Playtime" area of the site offers visitors time out from their working day with several exercises in work avoidance. There's a joke store called the Gag Factory, a game based on the latest buzz words called Lingo Bingo and Spot the Boss, where users are invited to recognise the face of authority.

Elsewhere on the site, On the Job aims to represent working life as it is, with a daily column, anecdotes and reviews, while Career Aid offers advice on more serious work issues. There is also an interactive forum called Talking Shop.

On Wednesday 28 April the site will carry full results of an extensive survey that the Guardian has commissioned on attitudes to work. The work survey lifts the lid on issues as diverse as boardroom pay, sex in the office, career changes and happiness in the workplace.

The launch of the Work Unlimited coincides with the start of a weekly feature in the Guardian's G2 section, Working Lives.
